Jennifer: Hey, hey. Hey, it's okay. Hey, it's me. You're safe.

Dusty: Hey, Red.

Jennifer: Were you back there? God, I can't imagine how you -- well, at least maybe the view was better today, hmm?

Dusty: Same view. But you're real now.

Jennifer: Can I get you anything?

Dusty: Want to give me a ride home?

Jennifer: More than anything. But can you?

Dusty: Yes, I can. Get me my pants, let's get out of here.

Bob: Not so fast, Donovan. You should think about sticking around for a couple of days.

Dusty: I'm fine. Just a bit tired.

Bob: Well, that's probably anemia. You know, a severe blood loss -- remember that gash they stitched up last night on your ankle. Then there's dehydration, malnutrition, lack of proper food and water for weeks -- you take your pick. I think you should stay, Dusty. Just let us watch you for a couple of days.

Dusty: Doc, I've been a prisoner for a few weeks. No more. I'm going home.


Will: Hey.

Gwen: Hey. You didn't say good-bye this morning.

Will: It was early, you probably had gotten in late --

Gwen: Yeah --

Will: So you probably needed your sleep.

Gwen: I don't need sleep so much as I need you. I'm sorry -- I'm sorry about last night. You know I was trying to get caught up at work. Casey lost the playlist for the --

Will: You know, it's really okay. You don't have to explain. I'm okay.

Gwen: You don't seem okay to me.


Meg: You know, I froze last night. Is it possible to get another blanket? Would that be easy to manage?

Cop #4: I'll see what I can do.

Meg: And have you heard anything about Paul Ryan? I know his car was spotted last night, and that's the last I heard. Do you know if they found him, or if he's okay?

Cop #4: I just came on duty. I'll look for a report.

Meg: Okay. You know, it's pretty quiet here today. Aren't there supposed to be a ton of people showing up to work?

Cop #4: It was a busy night, that much I know.

Meg: Okay, well, if you hear anything, please let me know. Even if my lawyer's here, just come on in, okay?

[Meg sighs]

Paul: I heard someone was chilly.

Meg: Paul! Oh.


[ Birds chirping ]

Carly: Morning.

Jack: It is.

Carly: I was out here all night?

Jack: Yeah. Yeah, I started to bring you up last night, but --

Carly: I must've been out like a light.

Jack: You wouldn't budge.

Carly: I guess yesterday was a bit much. Skeleton in the basement, forensics in my kitchen. Thanks for getting me out of the house, Jack. And for rounding up the kids. It feels so good not to be alone.

Jack: Yeah. You want some coffee?

Carly: Yeah, sure.

Jack: I'll put some on.

Carly: I wonder if the kids are up.

Jack: Yeah, I heard some rustling a while ago.

Carly: Emma probably has them dressed.

Jack: She's probably gonna have them doing chores after breakfast.

Carly: Oh, well, they'd love that. You know, J.J.'s decided to be a horse whisperer when he grows up, so he wants practice staring into the horses' eyes and reading their minds.

Jack: This is new.

Carly: Yeah, he decided yesterday at breakfast.

Jack: Oh --

Carly: You should ask him about it. I'm sure he'll tell you everything.

Jack: I will.

Emma: I could have sworn this shirt was clean when I put it on her.

Carly: Oh, she must have found that plant on the stair landing, huh?

Emma: And good morning to you, too. Did you sleep well?

Carly: Yes, we did. And don't worry about Sage's shirt. I think somebody around here told this little girl that there was candy at the bottom of that flower pot.

Emma: Oh, they did, did they?

Jack: It was meant to be a joke. Right, J.J.?

Emma: Joke? Some joke! I think they should be made to muck out the stalls.

J.J.: No, let me, please!

Jack: You want to clean the horse stalls?

J.J.: Yes.

Jack: What? Now, who on earth would like a job like that?

Emma: Wow, he could move in here.

Carly: Beats me.

J.J.: A horse whisperer!

Jack: A who? Grab the plates, buddy. And please, please, please tell me what a horse whisperer is.

J.J.: Well, first they listen to horses' thoughts. I think. It was in a movie, but the movie was long, and there was kissing, so I kind of forget part of it. But the horse part was cool.

Carly: So thanks for letting them stay.

Emma: Oh, listen, I wouldn't dream of letting you and the children stay at that house with the basement all messed up like that.

Jack: Okay, everybody, eat up.

J.J.: Aren't you eating, too?

Jack: Oh, no, buddy, I've got some calls to make.

Carly: Hey, your dad made pancakes and it's not even the weekend. I think that deserves some kind of cheer, doesn't it?

J.J.: Do the wave!

Emma: Whoo!


J.J.: It's not as good when Parker's not here.

Emma: Well, I'm impressed.

Jack: Me, too.

Carly: Me, three. And take it easy on that syrup, sir.

Emma: Yeah.

J.J.: All right.

Emma: Hey, do you know what we're going to do after breakfast?

J.J.: What?

Emma: We are going to candle eggs. Do you know what that means?

J.J.: No.

Emma: Well, we go to a very, very dark corner in the barn, and then we hold up a little light and we look through the eggy and see all the little, tiny chickies inside.

J.J.: Awesome!

Carly: On the fridge, behind the fruit.

Jack: Thanks.

Emma: Do you want some syrup? Want to pass the syrup?


Will: I'm fine. I'm just a little tired. You know, this shift started at 7:00. And since school's out today, I'll probably work a double. You know, we can use the money.

Gwen: Yeah. I'll get paid tonight, too.

Will: Oh, yeah?

Gwen: Yeah. You know, I'll finally be able to throw some money into the pot.

Will: That's good. Every last bit gets us closer to our own place.

Gwen: Yeah.

Will: What is this, Dad, truancy patrol? You know there's no school today, right?

Hal: I'm here to get a case statement. And Gwen needed a ride. Haven't you spoken to your sister yet?

Will: Yet?

Hal: She's here.

Will: What, in the hospital?

Hal: With Dusty. We found him last night. I have to get his statement.

Gwen: Hey, the club's opening tonight, if you want to take a break off of work.

Hal: If I can make it, I will.

Will: Hey, Dad, tell Jen that I'll come by when I can. When my shift's over.

Hal: Will do. And, listen, if I can't make it tonight, you have a great opening. I'm sure you'll be terrific.

Gwen: All right, thanks. Thanks.


Bob: An orderly will be up with a wheelchair just as soon as I sign the discharge papers.

Dusty: No chair, not necessary. I can walk.

Bob: Regulations. You ride.

Dusty: I'll ride.

Jennifer: Thank you, Uncle Bob.

Bob: He's all yours.

Jennifer: Yeah, he is, isn't he?

Dusty: Yeah, what are you going to do about it?

Jennifer: First? Follow doctor's orders.

Dusty: Yeah, what's that? Boring food? Sponge bath?

Jennifer: Hmm.

Dusty: Sponge bath.

Jennifer: Mm, my version.

Dusty: Well, get me my chair, I'm ready. I need my pants.

Jennifer: Not in my version.

Dusty: I mean to get out of here.

Jennifer: Well, I'm glad I remembered to bring some clean clothes when I went to check on Johnny.

Dusty: I cannot wait to see my man.

Jennifer: It took everything I had not to sneak him in here.

Dusty: Well, let's hope that he's gonna be awake when I get there.

Hal: Well, going somewhere?

Jennifer: Dad -- Dusty's been released.

Dusty: I'm going home.

Hal: Mm-hmm. Right after you give me a formal statement.

[Dusty sighs]


Meg: Oh, I was worried out of my mind.

Paul: Yeah, that's what I heard.

Meg: What?

Paul: The guards outside my cell were talking trash about you all night.

Meg: What?

Paul: They didn't tell you where I was?

Meg: No! I kept asking. Where were you?

Paul: I was in a holding cell, raising hell, until I finally started to wake up judges and lawyers.

Meg: What happened? You were arrested?

Paul: Stupid charges from before. I already made bail. Hal just wanted me out of the way.

Meg: Hal found you?

Paul: Listen, more importantly, we found Dusty.

Meg: Is he --

Paul: Alive? Yeah. He's pretty beat up, but he's fine. He's alive.

Meg: Oh, thank God.

Paul: Yeah.

Meg: What about Emily?

Paul: Well, last I heard, they hadn't found her, but I'm sure they have by now. The area wasn't that large. I don't think we need to worry about Emily anymore.

Meg: Yeah. Dusty's alive.

Paul: Yeah. He's at the hospital right now. Jennifer's with him.

Meg: Is he gonna be okay?

Paul: Mm-hmm. That's not the best part. You're clear, Meg.

Meg: What?

Paul: Well, that's the other thing that I was screaming at my lawyer about. With Dusty alive, he was able to say definitively, flat out that you had nothing to do with his kidnapping.

Meg: Really?

Paul: Yeah, it's over. They're processing the paperwork right now.

Meg: You did this?

Paul: Well, it would have happened eventually, but -- yeah, I pushed it along.

Meg: It's over.

Paul: Yeah. You're free. You can go home.


Dusty: I didn't see anybody but Emily.

Hal: But you were convinced that she wasn't working alone. Well, that's what you said last night.

Dusty: Hal, I made my statement. You can see for yourself how things went down. Who's in the middle of everything? Besides Emily.

Hal: I will pursue every trail possible. You can count on that.

Jennifer: And you'll tell us as soon as you find Emily, right?

Hal: Of course, I will.

Susan: Oh, Hal --

Hal: Hey.

Susan: I heard an orderly say this chair is for Dusty Donovan, but I had to see with my own eyes.

Dusty: Yes, it is.

Susan: How'd you finally find him?

Hal: He escaped.

Susan: From where? Were you being held prisoner?

Jennifer: He's been through quite a lot, so -- let's get him in that wheelchair and get him home where he belongs.

Dusty: Yeah.

Susan: Okay.

Dusty: Yeah, let's do that. Thank you.

Jennifer: Thank you. And dad, I'll check with you later?

Hal: Yeah.

Jennifer: Okay. All righty, here we go.

Hal: Take care.

Jennifer: Thank you.

Dusty: See you soon.


Hal: Susan, I --

Susan: They couldn't wait to get out of here.

Hal: I think you better have a seat.

Susan: I need to sit for this?

Hal: I think so. It's about Emily, and what happened to Dusty.

Dusty: You took that last corner on one wheel.

Jennifer: Well, you want to get home.

Dusty: You know it.

Jennifer: Don't you --

Susan: So, wait, it started New Yearís? Emily shot Paul?

Hal: He confirmed it.

Susan: But you can't believe a word out of that guy's mouth.

Hal: Meg treated the wound, she confirmed.

Susan: So we're supposed to believe that Emily, all by herself, stashed Dusty in some farmhouse?

Hal: Out in Coker's woods. That's where we lost her. There's an entire search team out there right now. There's a S.W.A.T. team standing by.

Susan: A S.W.A.T. team, after my daughter?

Hal: Only if there's a stand-off. Susan, she tried to kill two people. She was armed.

Susan: But she's probably scared, with all those people after her! She needs a doctor, not a bullet.

Hal: The team has my personal orders not to -- hell, half the squad was at my house when we were married. Nobody wants to hurt her, Susan. But this is where we are. Now, if she tries to contact you, you have to let me know.

Susan: She wonít. She hasn't trusted me with anything since she first moved in with Paul. But now --

Hal: And now she's desperate! So she might. And if she does, you know what to do.


Emma: Were you talking to someone at the station?

Jack: No. Why?

Emma: Well, I called there earlier, and Meg wasn't in her cell, and nobody told me what was happening. They didn't know what was going on.

Jack: I'll check on it first thing. Hey, how late were you at the station yesterday anyway? 'Cause I was up around 1:00, and you were nowhere to be found.

Emma: It wasn't much later than that. You know, Jack, Meg has done a lot of things that she's not proud of, but she is not a criminal. And she really doesn't belong in there.

Jack: Either she's protecting Paul or she's doing what he wants. She's not making it easy for us to help her.

Emma: Well, she says she's in love with Paul. And we all know about that, don't we?

Jack: So, what, is this time for my lecture?

Emma: No, I'm not going to lecture you. And I'm not going to take sides, either. I just really want you to be happy. I want all of you to be happy.

Jack: Okay. We don't make that easy.

Emma: No. No, you donít. You all waste too much time being hurt. Listen, give me a shout before you leave. Okay?

Jack: Okay. Love you.

Emma: You, too.

Carly: There's a couple of pancakes left, and some bacon, if you want.

Jack: Oh, no, I'm not hungry.

Carly: Well, how about some coffee?

Jack: I'm good.

Carly: So isn't J.J. a hoot with that horse mind-reading stuff? He was practicing on Sage the other night. And miraculously, he got the right answers -- that she wants cookies! [Laughter] She wants to stay up late and play videogames.

Jack: He's an operator. Listen, you don't have to do that. Come on.

Carly: No, I know, I donít. It's habit. So I thought that maybe we could take the kids out hiking around the pond later? I could pack up a picnic --

Jack: I spoke to Jason McCoy from forensics.

Carly: Oh?

Jack: After we left, they sent a team into the basement. They worked all night.

Carly: All night?

Jack: Yeah. Well, at least, now they're done. They got every trace of the skeleton, every bit of evidence out of the house.

Carly: That was fast.

Jack: Yeah, they're good. They fumigated the basement, they sealed up the wall.

Carly: Good.

Jack: Yeah, so it's perfectly safe now. You and the kids can go back home today.


Meg: I can't believe this. Home. Wherever that is.

Paul: It's wherever you want it to be, Meg.

Meg: Well, that's a loaded question these days.

Paul: Okay, so we'll take it easy. We'll start with what we know. You don't want to be here anymore.

Meg: Definitely not. No cops, no cells, no bars.

Paul: So, what do you want?

Meg: A hot shower. A cup of tea.

Paul: Sounds like the Lakeview to me.


Hal: Well, then go with a wider grid. The longer Emily's gone, the colder the trail. Who's on it? Well, pull shanks in with the k-9 patrol. I want her found before sundown. All right, everybody, listen up. Emily Stewart is still at large. Here's what we're gonna do.


Announcer: Coming up on "As the World Turns" --

Gwen: It was like something in him shut off. I mean, he was just --

Will: A big jerk?

Carly: Seeing your face, first thing. That's the definition of "Okay" to me.

Paul: I love you.

Meg: That's all I need, Paul. I'm so congested and I can't sleep.


Paul: How could you lose track of her?

Hal: What are you doing walking around here unshackled?

Paul: Oh, please, I beat those charges before breakfast, Hal. All you did in locking me up was lose your best shot at finding Emily.

Hal: The day you're my best shot at anything is the day I turn in my badge.

Paul: I would've found her, Hal. I would've brought her here. And what are you left with now? Nothing. You've been forced to literally sic the dogs on Emily.

Hal: You know, if you'd leveled with us from the beginning when you first suspected that Emily had Dusty, we wouldn't be in the position! We'd have Emily, and Dusty would've been home a hell of a lot sooner.

Paul: Or Emily would've been spooked and she would have killed Dusty.

Hal: I ought to charge you both with obstruction.

Paul: Fine, some other day. In the meantime, can we find someone to make sure that Meg's okay? Emily blames Meg for everything that's gone wrong.

Hal: Emily is going to be way too busy laying low to come after anybody, Paul, even Meg.

Paul: You don't know that. You have no idea what Emily's gonna do next. She stopped thinking like a normal person a long time ago. Now, please, can we please get Meg some protection?

Hal: Every officer I have is going to be out on the search. But you're standing in the one place that you can be sure Emily will avoid.

Paul: Are you kidding?

Hal: If you want police protection, stay in the police station.

Meg: No. I am not staying here another minute. And you can't force me, can you?

Hal: No, I can't hold you. The charges are dropped. But if I were you, Meg, I would think seriously about the choices you've been making these days.

Paul: He's right. You should think about staying here. And you should probably think about dumping me.

Meg: I'm not staying here. And I'm not dumping you, okay? Take me home.

Paul: All right. But let's be smart about this, okay? Let's not go to the first place that Emily's gonna look for you. Now, we can't go to the Lakeview, can't go to my house --

Meg: No, no. I meant home-home. With my mom.

Paul: What, the farm?

Meg: Yeah, she's been here half the night, she's worried. And I don't want to flake on her. And besides, Jack is staying there.

Paul: I guess that passes for police protection.

Meg: And you've seen my mama with a shotgun.

Paul: Yes, I have. And I think I might see her with a shotgun again today, if I show up with you.

Meg: She'll accept you, Paul. She'll have to. Come on.


Will: I'm really sorry I didn't come by before. I had no idea.

Jennifer: No, we just found him last night.

Will: Well, I'm glad you're back, man.

Dusty: Thank you, buddy.

Will: And Johnnyís gonna be glad, too.

Gwen: Yeah, he really missed you --

Will: Yeah, Jen's brought him by a few times, and he likes seeing Parker, but it's not the same as seeing you.

Dusty: Yeah, I can't wait.

Gwen: Yeah, I don't want to bug you guys -- maybe you could use your dinner break to come by Crash. I got a date to make up.

Will: Yeah, well, we'll see how it goes.

Gwen: If not, I'll see you at home.

Will: Okay.

Dusty: Bye.

Jennifer: Bye, Gwen.

Gwen: Bye.

Dusty: You know what? I'm gonna get rid of this chair. I'll let you guys talk for a second, then we can go when I get back right?

Jennifer: Sure. Will, don't waste a single minute.

Will: Excuse me?

Jennifer: That could've been the last thing that you ever said to Gwen, the last time that you see her. You know, I kissed Dusty one morning, went to run errands, and by that night he had disappeared. It's a miracle that I ever got him back. So whatever it is you two are fighting about, is it worth it? Do you love her? Do you wish I'd shut up and go away?

Will: Yeah.

Jennifer: Yeah?

Will: Thanks.

Jennifer: We'll see you soon? Yeah?

Dusty: We'll see you later, Will.

Will: Yeah. Hey, take care, man.

Dusty: Yeah. You, too.


Jack: If you want me to inspect the house before you head over there, I'd be happy to. But I trust McCoy.

Carly: Then I do, too.

Jack: Yeah, and he knows that it's -- it's my family, so --

Carly: Yeah, I'm sure it's safe. Thanks for being so careful.

Jack: Carly, I just don't want to disrupt the kids any more than they already are.

Carly: You're right. What?

Jack: I just -- I hate your brave face.

Carly: Yeah, me, too. It's a work in progress.

Jack: You don't have to pretend that everything's okay. The kids know what's going on.

Carly: They do not need to see me struggle, Jack. J.J. has some pretty vivid pictures in his mind of what happens when a mom struggles.

Jack: He can learn that it's not the same.

Carly: He can learn that in about ten years. But right now it needs to be okay. So I'm going to pretend like it's okay until my pretending looks real.

Jack: Someday it will be. Okay?

Carly: Not for me. This morning, seeing your face, first thing. That's the definition of "okay" to me.

[Cell phone rings]

Jack: Snyder.

J.J.: Hey, you should have seen.

Carly: Did you see? Did you see the little chicks in the eggs?

J.J.: Yeah, three. And one looked at me.

Carly: Oh, my goodness! That's wonderful. Hey, you guys, I have really good news. The basement is all fixed up. So we can go home. So go upstairs and get your stuff together, all right?

J.J.: Is Dad coming, too?

Carly: Jack's going to stay here for awhile, just like he planned.

J.J.: Why can't we all live here from now on, and be like a family?

Carly: Hey, now, we are still a family, no matter where we live.

Jack: That's right. And I have some good news about another one of our family members. Meg's on her way.

[Emma gasps]

Emma: What?

[Jack laughs]

Jack: Yeah. Completely free and clear. And coming home, yes.

Emma: Oh, my goodness. Oh, wonderful. Oh, thank you, lord. Oh, how wonderful!

J.J.: Can we stay? Please?

Carly: Just to say hello. Okay?

J.J.: Yes!

Emma: All right, listen, meanwhile, you can help me make Meg's favorite breakfast. I'm gonna make her some buttermilk biscuits. Okay? We're gonna need some peach preserves. Oh, Carly, could you pick those up for me? Down in the cellar? It's the root cellar?

Carly: Oh, yeah, sure.

Jack: No, I'll go. The cellar's not your favorite place these days, is it?

Carly: Well, I'm gonna have to get over that.

Jack: Not this morning.


Gwen: What?

Casey: Hey, is the bass too loud?

Gwen: It sounds fine.

Casey: All right, cool. It doesn't really matter with this recorded music, but when we get a live band in here? I want to make sure it's right.

Gwen: That's probably gonna be a long time off.

Casey: Maybe, maybe not. I think we might find someone Chicago.

Gwen: Chicago?

Casey: Yeah, you know, we'll hit up the acid rain tour, connect with some managers and bookers, and have them introduce us to the best talent in the area.

Gwen: And how are we supposed to get in the door? That tour was sold out like six months ago.

Casey: Not if you know the right person.

Gwen: What, somebody got you tickets?

Casey: Let's just say I know someone.

Gwen: Oh, let me guess. This is the same someone that got me this job here, right? Right?

Casey: Don't -- you know what? Don't even worry about it. I can handle Barbara.

Gwen: Please -- if she shows up with free tickets, then she definitely wants something.

Casey: You don't have to give in to her. And we'll still go to Chicago.

Gwen: I can't take that much time away.

Casey: Why not? Wait, what's going on here? Is this opening night jitters?

Gwen: No, it's -- it's just overload. This is taking way more time than I expected.

Casey: Yeah, I know. So?

Gwen: So I missed a date with will last night.

Casey: Was he ticked?

Gwen: He didn't say that. But he was -- I don't know, it was like something in him shut off and he was just --

Will: A big jerk?


Dusty: I'm glad the baby's asleep.

Dusty: It's not as bad as it looks.

Jennifer: I wish I could make it all go away.

Dusty: You already have. I can't believe I'm home. I would see you everywhere. I'd wake up talking to you. You kept me alive. And I thought I'd never actually see you again. I never thought I'd actually feel this.

Jennifer: I'm here.

Dusty: So much time has been taken away from us, Jenny. And Paul's always in the middle of it.

Jennifer: It doesn't matter. You're home. Nobody can bother us now. Please --

Dusty: Okay.

Jennifer: We'll make it all go away.


Meg: Paul, you were ready to spend the rest of your life in jail, just to protect me. That's not selfish. You put me first.

Paul: I put myself a close second.

Meg: No, that would be Dusty. You ran out of the police station last night to save him, a man you hate, and to clear my name.

Paul: What was I thinking?

Meg: Okay, will you stop making a joke out of this?

Paul: I don't -- I canít.

Meg: Okay, so do you want to hear the awful truth then? You're a noble man, Paul Ryan. You know, you might go about things a little wrong, but ever since I've known you, you've always thought of other people more than you've ever thought about yourself. You're a good person. What?

Paul: I -- I don't think anybody -- it's just been a long time, that's all.

Meg: Well, you know, don't get too used to it. Normally I'm a little stingy with compliments.

Paul: You --

Meg: Are the sanest girlfriend you've had this month?


Paul: You're the only one that I want. You are -- you're second to none. I love you.

Meg: That's all I need Paul, all I want.

J.J.: Aunt Meg! She's outside with a man, and they're kissing!

Carly: What man?

J.J.: I don't know.

Jack: Paul?

Carly: Oh, boy.

Meg: Hey!

Carly: Hey, hi, look who's here!

Emma: Oh, Meg!

Meg: Oh, it's good to be home!

Emma: Oh, home is good for you being here.

Jack: All right, all right, my turn! I didn't get the details on the phone.

Meg: Well, Paul got me out -- home. Home -- it was all his doing.

Jack: Very good.

Emma: Thank you for that, Paul.

Paul: Well, it wasn't all me.

Emma: Well, listen, let me get you guys some breakfast. I made these biscuits. This is her favorite.

Carly: Okay, we're gonna get out of your way, then.

Meg: No! No, don't rush out. Have breakfast with us.

J.J.: Yeah, come on.

Carly: No, no, we really do have to go. Emma, thank you so much for everything.

Emma: You're so welcome for everything.

Carly: Sage, J.J., get your stuff.

J.J.: Come on.

Jack: All right, I'll start the car.

Carly: No, no, no, Jack, you want to stay. You want to welcome Meg home, you know? She needs reinforcements.

Jack: I don't think that's me.

Carly: Don't you want to get the scoop?

Jack: Yeah, I should.

Carly: Well, then stay. We'll trade cars later.

Jack: You sure?

Carly: Yes, yes, we're fine. Totally fine. Come on, guys, let's go.

Jack: All right, okay.

Carly: Come on! Give Daddy a kiss.

Jack: Oh, bye, my beautiful girl. Bye-bye.

Carly: Give Dad a kiss.

Jack: Good-bye, horse whisperer. Get out of here.

Carly: Come on, let's go, let's go, let's go. Bye!

Emma: Bye-bye!

J.J.: Bye!


Will: Come on, open it.

Gwen: It's perfect. It's my favorite colors -- look at the design!

Will: I figured its like, you know, happy two-month anniversary slash opening night.

Gwen: Oh, I'm so sorry.

Will: No, don't be. I was being a real jerk.

Gwen: No, you had every right to be, I blew it. Here's what a jerk I am. I got so caught up in everything that was going on here, I forgot that it was our two-month anniversary.

Will: I thought girls had, like, a computer chip, you know, wired in there for that.

Gwen: I think my computer chip got corroded.

Will: Well, we can fix that. Right after the big opening night.

Gwen: You're coming?

Will: Yeah. I figured I'd help you guys out a little bit, and then I'd stay for the party.

Gwen: What about the second shift?

Will: No, I bagged it. This is way more important. You're way more important.

Casey: Hey, either get a room or start dancing.

Will: Excuse me? What?

Casey: Mover around, dance, walk, whatever. Just check the levels for me, make sure they're even.

Gwen: I vote for a dance.

Will: Yeah.

Gwen: Yeah?


Jennifer: Show me where it hurts.


Carly: All righty. Here we are, home sweet home.

J.J.: We were gonna hike at Emmaís.

Carly: Oh, I know, sweetheart. Why don't you go upstairs and play for a while, and then I'll take you hiking at the park, okay? And you've got baseball practice at 3:00, which will be really fun, because we'll be able to see Parker. Right? What?

J.J.: Your smile looks weird. Sort of like last night.

Carly: I know. I'm doing my best.

J.J.: It's okay.

Carly: No, it's not. It's not okay. But it will be soon. Will you take Sage and go and play with her for a while, and then I'll take you to the park?

J.J.: Sure.

Carly: You're the best.


Meg: We should go.

Paul: No, Meg. You're gonna stay here.

Meg: You are not going after Emily. Let Hal do his job.

Paul: Hal had all night to do his job. I can find Emily. But I'm gonna feel a lot better knowing that you're here with your cousin, the cop. And your mom, the crack shot.

Meg: Okay, stop it. I don't want to think about Emily.

Paul: Well, neither do I, but until she's captured, she's a threat to you.

Meg: So, stay here with me? [Jack clears his throat] Paul?

Jack: Meg, it's okay, really.

Paul: So what was the call?

Jack: We got an anonymous tip. Emily was spotted in town.

Paul: Great. So now she's out -- literally out of the woods -- and able to hurt anybody, anywhere.

Jack: Where are you going?

Paul: I'm gonna go for a walk.

Jack: No, Paul. Listen, I appreciate the help with my cousin. This is police business.

Paul: Yeah, well, the police let Emily slip right through their fingers.

Jack: Don't do this. Stay out of the way.

Paul: Do me a favor. Keep an eye on Meg, will you?

Jack: Paul, donít.

Paul: Hey, I'm just going for a walk. There's no law against that, is there?


[ Susan gasps ] [Emily is in the room]


Next on As the World Turns.

Carly: Gwen's singing?

Will: And she's really nervous. So I thought maybe, you know, if you were there, that would help.

Meg: I haven't committed any crime or broken any law. So if you're not going to do anything to help Paul, I will.

Jack: Meg!

Emily: Please, God, help me. Oh, God.

Paul: Where is she, Susan? Where's Emily?
